In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
This is a documentary, the subject of which is, well, right there in the title. It consists of behind-the-scenes footage, with a clearly unprepared Aronofsky giving varied, if occasionally worthwhile, commentary(just don't expect anything that isn't technical, and even that, there could have been more of). No talking heads, clips of the film, or real point. You do get to see rehearsal and shooting of effects and such, and a couple of the methods utilized(camera types, shutter speeds) are featured, and still this doesn't amount to much. For 35 minutes, there's absolutely minimal information. The editing comes off as them using all that was recorded that wasn't too blurry or otherwise messed up. Apart from that... well, they appear to have put it in chronological order. The pacing is all over the place. There is one brief bit that may upset some... let me put it this way, notice when Darren says he is doing the voice-over. While the language is quite infrequent, it is also rather strong. The violence is all fake, and there isn't any sexuality in this. I recommend this solely to those who feel they *must* watch any "making of" production. 1/10
